Learn about Nature's Healing
Ayurveda - Nature's Medicine. "Ayurveda," meaning the science and wisdom of life, is a comprehensive system of health and well-being, born in India over 10,000 years ago. Ayurveda covers practices such as yoga, meditation and natural medicine, all of which work together to create balance and health in body, mind and spirit. Ayurveda understands and treats discomfort and disease by understanding the imbalances in our constitutions, which, in Ayurveda, are comprised of three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
The Weaving & Expansion of Energy
Tantra can be defined as the path that leads to liberation. Contrary to the popular belief in the Western world, tantra does not advocate uninhibited sex. Tantric practices generate sexual energy and purify the energetic body. As a life-embracing philosophy, Tantra consists of various practices, including spirituality, love, sexual union and social life, in order to achieve one's spiritual aspirations. The "tools" one may use in a Tantric practice include mudras, mantras, prayers, meditation and other yogic practices that purify both the body and soul. Sexual energy is involved in the practices of some Tantrics. The philosophy of Tantra has influenced various faiths, such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Tantric rituals expand consciousness and liberate the practitioner from the physical level of existence.

ABOUT SHAMANIC PLANT MEDICINE
Ayahuasca & Wachuma Ceremonies
Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to humankind with archeological evidence that it been practiced all over the world for at least 70,000 years. Shamanism is not a religion, but a method for making transpersonal connection with the sacred realms. It’s at the epicenter of a new cycle of spirituality – one where there is no need for a priest, prophet or guru standing between you and your experience of the sacred realms. Each person becomes their own priest, their own guru receiving revelations from within themselves and higher transpersonal sources. Using plant medicine like Ayahuasca and Wachuma in sacred ceremony triggers powerful visionary experiences and enables us to access otherworldly realms and our hidden, inner subconscious landscapes.
ABOUT KUNDALINI YOGA & MEDITATION
The Yoga of Awareness
A well-taught Kundalini Yoga class leaves you feeling like you’ve gone to therapy, had an awesome workout in the gym, made it to your yoga mat and enjoyed a fun singing session with friends. The purpose of Kundalini Yoga is to provide a modality by which people can achieve their maximum creative potential, free themselves from Karma (the lasting effects of past actions) and realize their Life Purpose. Experiencing a Kundalini Awakening is like being given the secret code to your body, mind and spirits energy system. It brings balance to the nervous system, stimulates the master glands and allows the practitioner to spend more time in the bliss of the upper chakras.
“I received my first Shirodhara Treatment five days ago which I absolutely loved in a beautiful environment, soft colors and lighting, beautiful music. The Treatment with the oil is very healing. I have noticed several changes already. I am experiencing a deeper feeling of peace and calm and a lowering of my blood pressure from 142/83 to 110/71. I have been following Chris’ suggestions for dry skin brushing followed by a Vata calming oil self massage and then a shower. They had the products I needed so I could get started immediately. What a beautiful way to start the day with self care which has not been one of my fortes. I’ve needed help with that for some time and Chris is providing that.He also started me on a detox program that is perfect for my Vata body type with recipes for meals to support me. It is a complete program that I recommend very highly. He holds your hand from beginning to end and start you on the road to good health physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually which all go hand in hand. When you follow what is best for your body type, it all flows together with grace and ease without so much effort. Chris has a way of making you feel like a part of the family. Thank you, thank you. With love and LIGHT“ -Patricia Conte- Nelson – Mashpee, MA.
“You know you’ve found the right place when everything just clicks. Chris ``Raj`` is more than just an Ayurvedic Practitioner, he feels like family to me. I am very grateful to know him and am amazed at the ocean of knowledge he has about healing the mind, body and soul!” -Carol Mcilvane – West Barnstable, MA.
``When I contacted Chris ``Raj`` I was having a lot of problems with my body. Having tried so many different things to improve my health and lose weight, with no results left me very frustrated, needless to say. Upon meeting him I felt very supported and cared for in a very genuine way. I began making the suggested changes and implementing the ideas that were given to me and within a matter of weeks my heartburn and severe leg cramps (which kept me awake at night) began to subside!!! But the hardest part for me was the emotional part of letting go of refined sugar and looking at my sugar addiction. Needless to say I have felt raw and vulnerable. He gave me a wonderful technique to try when I had cravings and it really worked! My body is feeling so much better, in such a short time, and I’ve even begun to release my weight. I’m feeling strong and energetic and my sleep is great now. I couldn’t have done it without the guidance, support and genuine care from this amazing individual.. I am so grateful to have found him.`` Kelly Ruml – Wellfleet, MA.
